I'm leaning toward Henry Poole, they travel to Washington DC several times a year and I'll be going to London in June for business. Would also like to try Oxxford Clothiers.

When is the Next Brooks Brothers Sale? - Page 371post #5551 of 81543/23/14 at 7:29ampost #5552 of 81543/23/14 at 7:32ampost #5553 of 81543/23/14 at 8:12amQuote:
Henry Poole is great, but the price difference will be very significant. If you do go that route, I would suggest asking for Alex as your cutter.post #5554 of 81543/23/14 at 8:37ampost #5555 of 81543/23/14 at 8:38amQuote:
I haven't done research on price yet but I'm hoping I can get something for close to $2k. I didn't realize you could request a cutter.

Hey there -- I’m trying to work out a plan of action for my first suit in a long time, and I would be really grateful for your advice.
1) I’m trying to get the best price possible, and I’m willing to wait. I know from the Brooks Brothers e-mails I get that a preferred customer event is starting soon, with 25% off using the company credit card. It appears that I also get 15% with the BB credit card. I haven't applied for one yet. And I have access to about $450 of BB gift cards at 20% off.
- Does anyone know if the 15% and 25% discounts stack?
- I’m probably too late to get the gift cards and apply for the credit card for the upcoming customer event, so does anyone know when the next one is? Should I target the preferred customer events, or are there even better times to buy? (Should I wait until the X-mas sale? I looked around then, but there was nothing my size and the SAs were too busy to help. I've also seen some mention of a 40% off card in this thread.)
- I have available to me $450 of gift cards to the following stores as well, at a 20% discount. Would they be better choices for a suit? LLBean Macy’s Express Eddie Bauer
2) Which BB suit should I get? I've been doing some reading, it seems the 1818 will give me the best deal at a half-canvas. I could probably go for the Golden Fleece at full-canvas, but is the extra spend worth it?
3) Should I order in-store or online? I’m not a big fan of going into the store, but I understand I would likely get a better fit that way. On the other hand, it’s unlikely they’ll have a good selection for me, since my drop is so wide. I’m a 38S in the jacket, 28 waist.
4) Based on group recommendations, I also went to try on some Allen Edmonds. I liked the brown Strands more than the black Park Avenues I tried. Black Park Avenues were too conservative. I like the versatility of brown Strands, it seemed like I could wear them with jeans or a suit. Given the brown Strand as a shoe shoe, what color suit should I get? Gray? My other pair of dress shoes are some very old, but still in decent shape, black fancy cap-toe Bostonians.
Thanks!post #5561 of 81543/23/14 at 4:47pmpost #5562 of 81543/25/14 at 2:57pm
Same here. If anyone received a card and doesn't plan to use it, I would gladly accept the coupon code via PM. I've been waffling on buying a blazer and the 40% discount would be enough to get me off the fence. I bought a few items during the 30% corporate event and should have bought it then.post #5563 of 81543/25/14 at 5:45pmpost #5564 of 81543/25/14 at 6:06pmpost #5565 of 81543/25/14 at 7:10pm
